Tami Wacker

Tami Wacker makes sure seniors get the care they need. As an advocate, the graduate Human Services major assists residents in long term care facilities in 16 counties. Wacker was recently awarded the 2013 Ombudsman of the Year award at the Governor’s Conference on Aging. Even though she’s worked in the field for years, her gerontology education at the University of Illinois Springfield has opened her mind to new ideas. She enjoys learning different perspectives and methods in the human services field.
